Brenna Fender (BF): How does it feel to be coming back to judge the Cynosport World Games in Scottsdale again?
Scott Chamberlain (SC): It feels great! There's no better judging assignment than the Cynosport World Games.
BF: Do you think that your previous experiences judging this event will affect your experience this time?
SC: I've been judging USDAA agility trials for 14 years, including many Nationals, Regionals, and televised events I don't get nervous, I just use the excitement and adrenalin to keep me focused on judging my best. Exhibitors have spent the last year qualifying for this event and they expect and deserve the best judging.
BF: You judge agility quite a lot. What do you do when you are not judging?
SC: I manage the computer network and servers for an Architectural/Engineering firm.
BF: Do you do anything in particular to prepare to judge an event like this?
SC: I judged many trials this year, including four Regionals, so I'm well prepared.
BF: Do you have any advice for this year's crop of competitors?
SC: You've worked hard to earn you way here, now just have fun and trust your training and your dog.
